R.A.F. 1940 Pattern Flying Gauntlets

R.A.F. 1940 Pattern Flying Gauntlets

Code: SOLD-1130

SOLD
Extremely rare and sought after 'chemically heated' gauntlets. Manufactured in untreated suede/sheepskin with a shearling fleece lining. Chromed leather on the thumbs and gussets between the fingers. An adjustable press-studded strap runs adjacent to the cuffs. A proofed cotton pocket inside each glove was used to hold the chemical 'Everhot' bag which when dampened would provide heat for upto six hours. On the downside the gloves proved to be rather bulky in use and chemical burns were not uncommon. The suede outer of the these gloves is really quite clean and in very good condition bar a small 'U' shaped 'tear' in the skin (see photo). Please note that the longer snaking line on that glove is merely patination in the suede and not damage. One of the straps is a little stiff but both are complete and undamaged. The cotton pockets remain in place in both gloves. A very good pair. Stock code GA18898.
